In 1936, the seeds of the MacKenzie Art Gallery were planted with a bequest by Regina private collector Norman MacKenzie, who believed art should be accessible to all.
That spirit of inclusiveness has grown and deepened ever since. Today, our permanent collection spans 5,000 years and nearly 5,000 works of art, including one of Canada’s largest collections of art by Indigenous artists.
The diversity of the MacKenzie collection continually offers fresh perspectives, bringing people together to re-examine what they thought they knew. Through exhibitions, education, performance, workshops, and more, we are transforming how people throughout Saskatchewan experience the world, including relationships to Indigenous peoples, newcomers, and cultures from around the globe.
